Love You To the Stars

hi there! today i would like to share my first layout using mist. i bought a couple of bottles of studio calico mister huey color mist sometime back but did not have the chance to use them. i love the mist splatters that i have been seeing so much of, hence, i decided to try adding some to my layout. 

this background paper is one of my favourite from the dear lizzy "lucky charm" collection. i love the subtle circular design on the paper and i wanted to place the photo in the middle so i started by adding splatters to form a circle. 

for the title, i stamped the quote "love you to the stars" on white cardstock using the studio calico noah outline stamp. next i painted the letters with mist, cut them out and adhere to the page to form a semi-circle. for more texture, i hand-stitched (this is the time i wish i have a sewing machine!) a couple of circles along the mist splatters added earlier.

i then place the photo in the middle of the page and added a few pieces of patterned papers, vellum and a floral die cut from dear lizzy "5th and frolic" collection as layers.

since the title only forms a semi circle, i place some wood veneer stars, feathers, sequins and a gold foil heart sticker on the opposite side to balance it.

here are some detailed shots.

i'm happy with the results of the mist splatters and will definitely try them again in my next layout.
